Liverpool's failure to make a challenge for the top four has not ¬≠prevented ¬≠Dalglish living up to Bill Shankly's ¬≠philosophy that the club "exists to win trophies".
Victory over Chelsea at ¬≠Wembley next month will complete a domestic cup double.
Dalglish said: "The beliefs and ¬≠philosophy that Bill Shankly put in place will never change at this ¬≠football club.
"If that's what Shanks believed then maybe a few people should listen to him.
"The problem is the goalposts keep moving. Some people say that ¬≠winning trophies is more important, other say it's all about finishing in the top four."
He added: "The overall view this ¬≠season was to improve, give the ¬≠supporters a bit of pride back and put a smile on their faces."
